Bridging the Gap between Sales & Finance with Integration: 5 Key Steps
More sales opportunities means more orders and better cash flow for your business... but only if the handoff between sales and finance is seamless. Disconnect between these teams is common as sales teams live in their CRM and finance teams live in the ERP. Manual processes and data entry can lead to bad data landmines, making the path to revenue recognition -- and even sales -- a long one.
How can you bridge this gap between sales and finance and ensure growth isn’t hampered? The answer lies in automation. In this session, you’ll learn from Mark Simon, VP of Strategy, at Celigo five integrations to improve sales and finance efficiency. Topics include best practices for:
- Automating order processing
- Streamlining customer billing
- Automating collections processes
- Integrating payments and automating reconciliation
- Boosting data visibility for sales & finance teams

5 metrics SaaS CFOs need to move from early to growth stage
If you don’t prepare ahead of time, you could get stuck not producing the key SaaS metrics that investors want to see when they’re considering investing in your next round. Not preparing the right SaaS metrics can ultimately reduce valuation, or even kill your fund raise. In this session we’ll share some powerful insights into the SaaS metrics investors want to see from SaaS start-ups depending on their stage, introducing the key objective with each stage of the company, what it means, how to measure it, how the finance team plays a role, and the processes that must be built to make this objective successful.

Series 2 Sessions:
GETTING TO PRODUCT MARKET FIT
The path to product/market fit can be full of twists and turns. Have you identified the ways your product meets customer needs and solves their challenges - ways your competitors do not? And does your value proposition align with your customer needs and distribution channels, so your customers can see the value in your product? If so, you could be close to reaching PMF. But how do you sustain that fit, once you find it? Join industry leaders from Superhuman, Slite and PlayPlay for their top tips on getting to product/market fit.
GROWTH STRATEGIES FOR STARTUPS
How do you grow a SaaS startup? That's the big - and ever-changing - question. The journey from $0-$1M is completely different from $1M-$10M, which is then different from the $10M-$100M growth stage. Connect with top industry leaders to explore advice to help you accelerate and sustain growth, and practical tips for where to focus to drive growth at different stages of your startup journey.
